Introduction to Kalsarpa Yoga

When in a person's birth-chart all the planets namely Sun, Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are placed between Rahu and Ketu then the person has the Kalsarpa yoga.

In this combination the shadow of Rahu and Ketu destroys the benefic influences in the kundali and increases the malefic effects. The effect is like that of a serpent swallowing all happiness. The person affected by this Yoga performs all his duties and responsibilities. She is born to help others in trouble while his own life may be full of struggle.   She may have an extraordinary amount of problems and conflicts and there may be many ups-and-downs in life. This Yoga takes people to tremendous heights and then brings them crashing down to earth.

The Kalsarpa yoga has got a lot of fame recently, but according to most qualified astrologers this Yoga is not always malefic. Many say that no Yoga is fully good or bad, but according to circumstances even Kalsarpa Yoga will give a person positive results.

Let us find out what are the different kinds of Kalsarpa Yoga and their impact on a person's life.

Types of Kalsarpa Yoga
Astrologers have classified Kalsarpa yoga into 12 types according to the positions of Rahu and Ketu in the kundali. Each type is named after a mythological serpent.

Annant Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the 1st house and Ketu is in the 7th house of the Kundli.

Anant Kalsarpa yoga gives an unusual amount of physical and mental strain. The married life may be stressful and the person may not be able to benefit from partnerships. There may be frequent financial losses.

Kulik Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the 2nd house and Ketu is in the 8th house.

When Kalsarpa Yoga is the Kulik Kalsarpa, the person may have strained relationships within the family and an unsound financial condition. There could be a lack of money due to low savings and the person may not have enough earnings from his or her profession.

Vasuki Kalsarp Yoga :
Rahu is in the third house and Ketu is in the ninth house.

Vasuki Kalsarp makes the person's life full of struggle. He may have trouble in his job or business and may not get enough support from his family and friends. There could be problems in attaining financial independence and the person may have sudden reversals in fortune.

Shankhpal Kalsarp Yoga :
Rahu is in the fourth house and Ketu is in the tenth house.

Shankhpal Kalsarp gives the person delays in education and marriage and the person may have a strained relationship after marriage. This combination may create problems in matters related to property and inheritance. There will not be enough money, and it has a negative effect on the relationship with the mother.

Padma Kalsarp Yoga :
Rahu is in the fifth house and Ketu is in the 11th house.

Due to the effect of the Padam Kalsarpa Yoga getting a good education may become a challenge as the memory may not be very strong. The person may not find it easy to have children and could have failed love-affairs due to emotional nature.

Mahapadam Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the sixth house and Ketu is in the 12th house.

The Mahapadam Kalsarpa yoga creates problems from hidden enemies. In despair the person may turn to bad-habits and addictions. There could be failures in important competitions and even court cases.

Takshak Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the seventh house and Ketu is in the 1st house.

There could be an unusual delay in marriage and the person might have frequent squabbles with the spouse. Partnerships will not be very fruitful and it takes an unusual amount of effort to make money when the person has the Takshak kalsarpa yoga. There will be some disappointment in love-life too.

Karkotak Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the eighth house and Ketu is in the second house.

The Karkotak Kalsarpa makes the person very volatile. In anger she may create many enemies. Bad eating habits could make the person's health shaky and stray her from her focus. There is a possibility of accidents too.

Shankachood Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the ninth house and Ketu is in the third house.

Shankhachood Kalsarp gives the person severe ups and downs in life. The luck may not favor and there may be failure right at the brink of success. She may not be friends with her father and teachers and the younger siblings may not give enough support. Even friends could turn a traitor.

Ghatak Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the tenth house and Ketu is in the fourth house.

Vishdhar Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the eleventh house and Ketu is in the fifth house.

Vishdhar Kalsarpa yoga gives the person a deep desire to earn money without efforts. She may lose money in gambling, lotteries, etc. There may be a delay in education and having a child. The social status of the person is affected due to his behavior.

Sheshnag Kaalsarpa Yoga :
Rahu is in the twelfth house and Ketu is in the sixth house.

Kalsarp yoga is not always harmful
It is not correct to say that Kalsarpa Yoga causes only disaster. In fact many famous and very succesful people have kalsarpa yoga. These include former prime minister Jawahar Lal Nehru, famous cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Musician Amjad Ali khan, Writer Amrita Pritam Singh and even the birth-kundali of India itself has Kalsarpa if cast for our independence day.

Remedies for Kalsarpa yoga
You can perform the remedies of Kalsarpa yoga to lessen its malefic effect. Chant the Maha-mrityunjaya mantra or the Mantra Om Namah Shivaya. Worship lord Krishna. Feed a dog and keep a fast on Nag-panchami. Donating the goods related to Rahu like black pulses, iron goods is also a good remedy.

    I was born on 26-06-79 at 11 pm in Nellore, Andhrapradesh, India. I have good yogas but wrongly placed. Mine is Kumbha Lagna with Ketu in it. In 4th house I have Kuja and Sukra, 5th house Sun, 6th House - Guru, Chandra and Budha and 7th House - Sani and Rahu. 4th Drushti/aspect of Kuja on 7th house, Kal Sarpa Yoga and Sat and Rahu in 7th house are the problems in my chart. Can you please advise me the remedies and also tell me if there is any hope of getting a good life partner? Read that the life partner would be aged compared to me. Is that inevitable?
